Independent Curators International (ICI) supports the work of curators to help create stronger art communities through experimentation, collaboration, and international engagement. Curators are arts community leaders and organizers who champion artistic practice; build essential infrastructures and institutions; and generate public engagement with art. Our collaborative programs connect curators across generations, and across social, political and cultural borders. They form an international framework for sharing knowledge and resources — promoting cultural exchange, access to art, and public awareness for the curator’s role.
Sofia de Grenade
Sofia de Grenade (Chile, 1983) holds a BA from Universidad Austral de Chile. Her exhibitions include FIX 07, Catalyst Art, Belfast, Northern Ireland, 2007, and La Timidez de las Cosas, Espacio de Arte Contemporáneo (EAC), Montevideo, 2014. In addition to her work as a visual artist, she works on educational programs with communities from rural areas in Southern Chile. In this context, she uses self-publication strategies to develop tools to generate collective learning processes. Since 2014, her artistic work has been linked to her collective Sagrada Mercancía, with whom she has participated in different processes and public presentations. De Grenade’s latest works have been developed from an environmental research interest, using diverse media such as photography, installation and printed publications.
Never Spoken Again reflects on the birth of modern collections, the art institutions that sustain them and their contingent origin stories. Curated by Colombian curator David Ayala-Alfonso, an alumnus of ICI’s Curatorial Intensive, the exhibition is part of ICI’s new series of programs supporting emergent voices in the curatorial field.read more »
